Floral Collage


This is collaging Block-it style!! Block-it is some very narrow masking tape-like tape. It is low tack, so it fits perfectly in between the squares on the background stamp. Then, when you're done stamping you remove the tape which can be reused (if you're the thrify type....which I am!) and you have a perfectly stamped collage background.

The background stamp is by an unknown company....I think I found it in a used rummage sale bin unmounted and mounted it myself. The stamps are all by Hero Arts except *wish* which is by SU! and *hi* which is by Impression-Obsession. The blue cardstock is Bashful Blue by SU! The little blue gems are by Mark Richards. The round slide mounts are by Design Originals and I removed the acetate liners and ran them through the script cuttlebug and mounted them so they are actually debossed for a different look. Flowers are by Prima.
